When it comes to writing for the web, it is completely different to any other types of writing. People want to be able to skim through website content, they don’t want to read it at great length and there is always another article or business that can answer their questions just a few clicks away.
You need to make sure you write great business website content to keep the reader interested long enough so he or she will read what you have to say and then go on to purchase a product or service, or continue going through your website to find out more about your business and what you do.
Firstly you want to make sure your content is relevant and valuable. The user will type in the keyword into the search engine and expect that this search engine will send them to content that is relevant, if it is not they will bounce straight back off of the website and go to your competition.
Think about the length of your business website content, you don’t want it too short so it doesn’t give the reader enough, but you also don’t want it too long so they get bored. Aim for 300-600 words of content on every page of your business website.
Make sure you stay on topic. In blog posts it can be very easy to divert onto another route and into another topic, but as soon as you realise you are doing this stop and write down a topic for the next blog and get back to the original topic on this blog post. You can always put links to other pages and blog posts if there is relevant information that may be of interest.
Check and recheck your business website content for spelling or grammar errors, either take a break and look at it later or ask someone else to read through it for you to help you notice errors that may have otherwise been missed.
Remember that nobody knows your products or services better than you so write assertively and write with authority. You are an expert in your field so don’t be afraid to prove that to the reader of the website content.
